President of the NSCN /GPRN Yung Aung greets the people of WESEA region while thanking the almighty in making the freedom struggle sustained on occasion of the party’s 40th Foundation Day. The President of the NSCN also pay salute to the thousands of brave Nagas and innocent men, Women  and  children who lay down their precious lives in defending the land and extended his greeting to all revolutionary greetings to all the fraternal revolutionary parties and people of WESEA region.
In his message the President of the NSCN said that on 31st January, 1980 the political history was rescued by God from perishing through some anointed leaders who timely restored our Nation by forming  National Socialist Council of Nagaland /Government of the People’s Republic of Nagaland with ‘Full sovereignty’ as its firm principle.He recounted on how the region was forcibly dominated and colonized by lndia and Myanmar after their Independence. And how both the countries   committed   inhuman atrocities and war crimes against the innocent Nagas over the decades of their occupation, the NSCN leader said.
The NSCN leader also recalled years and years of divisive polices perpetrated by both the countries to divide the Nana based on the imposed boundary line and disintegrate the NSCN/GPRN leading to fratricide between brothers.
“The Naga freedom struggle has come a long way, making it one of the longest armed struggles in the world. Our people have paid heavy price by their sweat, tears and blood in their quest to regain their freedom. Yesterday today and tomorrow: Sovereignty is our inherent birthright and it is non-negotiable”, he said.
Today both India and Myanmar has become closer policy-wise, adopting similar strategy and tactics to assimilate and subjugate Nagas politically, economically and culturally. Their ‘Act East Policy’ and ‘Look west policy are two sides of the same coin to benefit both the countries while subduing our country and the whole WESEA region, he continued and added that these two countries still harbor the old colonial mentality that ‘Might is right” and continues to unleash their reign of tenor to suppress our genuine struggle. India is taking a major role in masterminding joint political a. military operations with the Tatmadaw, providing all possible logistic and material supports. She is utilizing Myanmar as a stepping stone to expand and implement her ambition. Myanmar has gained billions of rupees in aids in achieving India’s tainted policies.
“Some Nagas, in their confusion, are cynical and doubtful of NSCN/GPRN and our struggle. They speak of uncertainty, impossibility, and impracticality of the Naga sovereignty. They inject fear and doubt in the minds of fellow Nagas because they fear the future. However, the hope and prayer of millions of Nagas is stronger than this more cynicism”, the statement by Aung Yung said.Today, in spite of all our difficulties, we cannot flee the future; instead we must face it together. It is our joint national endeavor. A strong Naga nation can be formed when we unite and take responsibility in shaping the future of our nation., he added.
He further said , “On my part, I am willing to resolve our past differences and reconcile under his holy banner ‘Nagaland for Christ” and based on the fundamental principle of the Naga sovereignty”.
He appealed the Naga to support the ‘National liberation movement”.
